Yes…. I present to you yet another Grail T-shirt from Vesta Patterns! I should really just buy stock in Vesta Patterns. Although, this one is slightly different….
I used the long-sleeved scoop neck Grail with the largest size of the cowl from the Renfrew pattern. I unfortunately did not have enough fabric and ended up needing to piece the cowl neck. It worked out though- I was able to hide the seams for the most part. I used this post to help with figuring out the cowl… it was a tad confusing based solely on the pattern directions
On my last long-sleeve Grail the sleeves were just right. I realize now that may have just been the super stable ponte talking, as this one ended up being just a tad too long.
Speaking of fabric….I’ve been hoarding this stuff for a few months now with the express intention of making a cowl t-shirt. It’s freakin’ Bamboo Jersey!! It’s super soft and drapey, with just a touch of sheen 🙂
It is, however, a slippery bitch! She gave me a bit ‘o trouble more than once… so I would not recommend it as first time sewing with knits project
Of course that did not stop me from buying more for short-sleeve t-shirts!
This pose seems to be a requirement when you make a Refrew, so I didn’t want to disappoint 😉 You can also see were I had to piece the cowl neck.
Apologies for the indoors/oddly lit pictures. This represents the third in my ‘Winter is Coming’ wardrobe… and well we are firmly in the throws of Summer- I did not want to go outside in long sleeves 😦
P.S. I busted out my wool Zinnia to give you the full Winter look 🙂
